harvest party 2006

Filed under: family, gardening — noisedoctor @ 3:30 pm

My wife and I host a harvest party each fall. We usually call it the “pumpkin harvest party” but this year our pumpkins all rotted well before the party. Normally we have the guests pick and carve pumpkins. So, that didn’t happen this year. But, we had more people than ever (27 kids and 51 adults) attend.

Instead of pumpkin carving, we had cookies cut in the shape of pumpkins with icing and toppings for decorating, pumpkin coloring pages, and a craft for the kids. Given that we had winds gusting to 40 mph, we had to close up the garage and keep the event “inside.”

It was quite a blessing to see so many neighbors, friends, co-workers, and family. It’s fun to watch the kids playing with other kids that they’ve never met before. How easily they can make friends. How come so many people lose that ability as they get older?
